Does Berant (pronounced Bernt) Phillip sound too old-fashioned? It honors my great-grandfather and grandfather's names.

Honestly, I'd say it does sound really old fashioned. My suggestion for you would be a double middle name.

For example:
Hunter Berant Phillip
Oliver Berant Phillip
Henry Berant Phillip
Wiley Berant Phillip
Reece Berant Phillip

It does sound very old fashioned. I like above suggestion of using double middle name too. Philip Berant could be okay!

Berant is old fashioned, but Phillip is not.

How about:

Braeden Phillip?

I like Berant as a middle name. Remember, you want teachers to be able to pronounce the name...I always felt sorry for the kids who's teachers butchered their names from elementary school through college!
